Russell Crowe stands tall in the first 'Noah' poster, released ahead of the soon-to-be-dropped trailer. Though we've been keeping tabs on Darren Aronofsky's Biblical epic for some time now, this new look at the film -- much like the story's events -- does not seem like a vision of good things to come.

The first trailer for Akiva Goldsman's directorial debut 'Winter's Tale' will probably make the most sense to those who've read the Mark Helprin book. We're a little unsure of what to make of it, though it stars Colin Farrell as a charming thief and Russell Crowe as a bad guy (and possible sorcerer), so it could be worth watching.

'Man of Steel' Poll: Prequel or Sequel? Which Would You Prefer?

In something of an off-hand comment, Russell Crowe mentioned on Twitter that he's been receiving lots of questions regarding a 'Man of Steel' prequel, one that would be set entirely on Krypton and focus on his character, Jor-El. He then mentioned he's very open to the idea, but are you?

Although this summer has been full of highly-anticipated blockbusters, 'Man of Steel' may be the one that has worked fans into the biggest tizzy. The long-overdue follow-up to Bryan Singer’s 'Superman Returns,' conceived as a reimagining of the character from the ground up, promises the kind of moral complexity of the last three Batman movies, while still retaining the energy and frenetic action of, well, all of the earlier Superman movies. Director Zack Snyder created a singular vision for Superman’s beginnings, rebranding the character as an outsider struggling to find his place in a world that he knows is not his own.
At the recent Los Angeles press day, we got to speak with the cast and crew of 'Man of Steel.' In addition to discussing the challenge of bringing Superman back to life, the actors talked about their physical and psychological roles within the film, while the filmmakers offered their perspective on why the character endures – and why that enduring persona had to be reinvented for a new generation.

One of Superman's most interesting struggles has always been whether to follow the example set by his human, adopted father, Jonathan Kent or his long-dead natural father, Jor-El. In 'Man of Steel,' we know that "Pa" Kent (Kevin Costner) teaches him his core values, but it looks like he inherited all of his ass-kicking abilities from his actual daddy (Russell Crowe), as this new clip shows us that Superman won't be the only one kicking butt and taking names in Zack Snyder's film.

'Man of Steel' Review

I believe a man can fly -- and beat the living hell out of Michael Shannon for close to 40 compounded minutes in ways hitherto unseen on film. But Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel' is no mere slugfest. It goes for broke, faces the legend and tackles the iconography of one of modernity's largest-shared myths, Kal-El of Krypton, on its own terms. It is among the finest "franchise reboots" of all time, which may sound like a bit of a backhanded compliment until you realize that this is, in fact, a genre unto itself. It manages, somehow, to be "the same but different," a new film that everyone under the yellow sun knows from beginning to end. It is the film of summer 2013.

In less than a week, the highly anticipated 'Man of Steel' will finally hit theaters and we'll all get a chance to see Henry Cavill's Superman in action. However, film fans have another reason to be excited for Zack Snyder's take on the world's most famous superhero -- the great character actor Michael Shannon is playing the role of General Zod! A new clip from the film gives us a glimpse of his performance, as well as a good look at Russell Crowe's Jor-El.
